    I think Adrian has got a fantastic tone on the Vandenberg Live In Japan Video/DVD and on the Heading For A Storm album. Does anybody know if he used any overdrive pedal then? To me it sounds like a Les Paul in to a Marshall or Marquise/Maquise (an amp i've red he used and you can see in the Live In Japan Video/DVD) turned up loud.

    The whole crowd seems uninterested, one guy looks like he's gonna throw a rock, maybe it's because they got a great view of his ass.

    It's never a good idea to turn your back to the crowd


    Adrian does have awesome tone and a great player!

    Norlin strikes again!!!

    I think this is the same guitar, the Heritage Standard 80 he used back in the early 80's Vandenberg band days.

    No pick guard screw holes .
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    He thinks the mirror is a photo of a clown ?

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    The flame pattern matches, even though it is way more 'lit up' here.

    That's the Heritage LP reissue in both clips.

    He had a '58 burst that he got in LA - don't know if he still owns that one.

    Yeah, I saw the busy inlays in the second clip. Regardless of what it is, it's a REALLY nice sounding Les Paul!
